    Sorry if I missed the existing thread.

    Not quite sure what to think just yet. The intro of Supergirl just seems so... rushed. Figured it would be a couple of episodes before we got the full scoop (Zor-El vs Jor-El, etc) instead of the close of Act 2. Laura V certainly is adorable when she smiles though. :)

    While I think I like this episode as a whole, I think so many of the plot threads opened here (Lana, Lois, the new editor at the DP) are going to really suck...

    I'll give it a :up: for now, but I can see how this is the beginning of the end of my run watching this show...

    It was a pretty good episode. The Supergirl stufff is alright I guess. I like Lois working at the Daily Planet, it's about time. I don't really care about the Lex and Lana story line anymore. I wish they would have shot each other and been done with it.

    I thought the timing of Supergirl's ship being taken was suspicious, but then them opening the ship and obtaining the crystal was just taking it too far. Who is feeding the Department of Domestic Security enough information to be able to pull this kind of thing off? Something stinks somewhere. I suppose the major arc this season will be getting the crystal back and then taking it to the fortress of solitude for playback.

    I really hope the Lois vs. Chloe storyline has a big payoff. Chloe has been off her game since he learned Clark's secret. She's having to cover up too much now.

    Like everyone else, I don't care what they do to the Lana storyline. Please kill her off.

    I expect Lex will meet Kara very soon. She can't really hide living on the farm alone with Clark unless she comes and goes at superspeed.

    I thought Supergirl was one of the worst actors I've seen on the show (that that includes Lana). Not real hopeful for this storyline. In the comics did Kal-El or crystal Jor-El think Kara was evil? That seemed weird.

    Ugh. You're right, how could they do this after the show was almost going in a good direction? Here is the preview for next week if you want to read it. If you want to look forward to next week, don't read it.

    Kara (Laura Vandervoort) desperately wants to make friends and fit in on Earth, but Clark (Tom Welling) tells her to keep a low profile until she can get her powers under control.

    Despite his warnings, when the "Miss Sweet Corn" beauty pageant comes around, Kara signs up and meets the competition - Tyler (Eva Marcille), Carly (Elisa King) and Tempest (Christine Chatelain) - three meteor-infected vixens who plan to use their powers to steal a treasure map to the hidden Smallville time capsule.

    After Tyler witnesses Kara using her powers, the girls pretend to be her friends, but are really planning to use her for their devious plan.

    I wonder if they base when to air episodes that are strictly T&A episodes vs episodes that are sappy lana stories vs superhero episodes on the lunar cycle? Do men have an equivalent of synchronized periods?

    What was up with Clark and Kara's conversation in the barn?

    (paraphrased)

    KARA: Krypton can't be gone! It feels as though I was there, just moments ago.
    CLARK: Tell me about my family.
    KARA: My memory of the past is hazy...

    I don't think that's quite how it went down.
    They tried to open the ship, but instead set off the self-destruct sequence.
    The ship exploded. However, the crystal can only be destroyed by a kryptonian. So after the ship exploded, the crystal was left behind. It was sort of handed to them on a silver platter - the explosion destroyed everything else, so the only "wreckage" left was the crystal.

    That was my take on what happened, too. Which begs the question: what genius designed such a crazy-stupid self-destruct mechanism, anyway? Hmmm... someone is trying to break into the ship. Let's have the ship destroy itself, leaving behind the most valuable part for the taking... I guess it makes sense, if the crystal isn't normally contained within the ship. Very unfortunate the way things worked out, in that case.

    Why didn't she and Clark see the crystal immediately after the explosion? There was no wreckage and even Lois appeared to be uninjured by the proximity of the blast.

    That's because Kara contained the blast.

    By waving at it from above.

    Um...

    Maybe the waving made the crystal, um, temporarily invisible?

    They extracted the crystal before the els got there.

    Which makes no sense because it would have exploded already. It was only after Lois touched it that it decided "oh, I better blow up!"

    Skeletor absorbed the explosion, which was just a beam of something.

    Maybe they just didn't hear the klunk of the crystal after it dropped... super-selective-hearing.
